Open Post: Hosted By Ginuwine Falling During His “Lovers & Friends” Set And Later Laughing About It
The Lovers & Friends music festival in Las Vegas was apparently cursed by dead mobster spirits that overlook the city. Because not only has it resulted in Usher’s alleged birthday bash beatdown at the hands of Chris Brown, but it also tried to kill Ginuwine as well! Ok, not necessarily “kill” him, but Las Vegas did send some bad juju his way after he took a nasty spill during his set. But he wants everyone to know he’s fine and is explaining exactly what happened when gravity pulled him just a little closer to the ground.
Entertainment Tonight reports Ginuwine is feeling better after almost tumbling into the center of the Earth during his set at Lovers & Friends. And many people in attendance captured the moment, and it goes from slightly hilarious to showing that his fall got nasty bay-bayyyyy.
The “Pony” singer fell off the stage during his performance at the event in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday, as he attempted to step down onto a lower platform. The 52-year-old musician, who also goes by Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, then lost his balance, nearly pullingdown the ASL interpreter with him, and appeared to eventually split his pants in the process. The entire moment was captured from multiple angles on social media.
Here’s what most people saw as Ginuwine disappeared into the stage like someone sinking into Quicksand.

And here’s Ginuwine’s fall with the commentary we all need. Notice how the lady filming takes a moment to acknowledge his mishap yet never breaks from continuing the song (that’s called dedication).

And as for Ginuwine, he’s being a pretty good sport about it. Because, clearly, anyone with sight witnessed him fold into the stage like a collapsed tripod. But rather than try to pretend it didn’t happen or be cool about it, he owned up to his own clumsiness on Instagram to let everyone know he’s fine.
Ginuwine also posted a video of himself laughing off the mishap while riding in a car to his next show in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Shoutout to everybody at Lovers & Friends. That was a crazy, crazy show,” he said.
“We had so much fun,” he continued, adding with a big laugh, “Um, aside from my little spill. Man down! Man down! And then man got up, you know what I mean.”
Then, he launched into singing Donnie McClurkin’s “We Fall Down.”
Just a suggestion, but leave the acrobatics and stage jumping to the young folks Ginuwine. Nobody wants to see you try to gyrate with a broken hip at your next concert.
